Alone in the Wilderness

Dick Proennekke's solitary Alaskan back country existence is fascinating and inspiring. Simple tools, skill and patience at work. This excerpt from Alone in the Wilderness shows him at the beginning of his existence out in the wilderness, building his cabin by hand. He lived--not just survived--in this cabin in the Alaskan bush until the age of 82, when he returned to spend his final years in civilization. His cabin is still stands, much as he left it, watched and maintained by the park service.
